The Story Monster Podcast – Episode 07, The Suicide Squad (2021) Review feat. PHILmoore

This movie was one hell of a ride and not in a good way. I don’t know what the writers and James Gunn are smoking, but I need them to stop….and share. The Suicide Squad is a diet reboot of its predecessor from 2016. Oh, how I tried to forget that one. Although the story sucked, there are many laughs to be had. Harley Quinn … Continue reading The Story Monster Podcast – Episode 07, The Suicide Squad (2021) Review feat. PHILmoore

The Story Monster Podcast – Episode 06: Werewolves Within (2021) Review

There’s been a debate for hundreds of years about which is better. Werewolves or Vampires? Well, I’m here to put all that to rest and declare that werewolves are more awesome! Period. So when I saw the trailer for Werewolves Within, I was sold. Two of my favorite genres, horror and comedy, working together to change the world. So, should you watch it? Hell yeah. … Continue reading The Story Monster Podcast – Episode 06: Werewolves Within (2021) Review

The Story Monster Podcast – Episode 05: Andre Batts “A Pioneer of Black Comics”

I’ve had the pleasure of running into this man not once, but three times. Back when the world wasn’t suffering a pandemic, I attended all the comic book conventions I could. From small lesser-known venues to C2E2 at McCormick Place. I met Andre Batts at the very first Wakanda Con in 2018 at the Hilton hotel. Andre Batts is a humble man with a great … Continue reading The Story Monster Podcast – Episode 05: Andre Batts “A Pioneer of Black Comics”

The Story Monster Podcast – Episode 04: Loki (2021-) Review

The show centers on the God of Mischief, Loki (played by Tom Hiddleston). He was last seen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe during Endgame. The Avengers traveled to the past and inadvertently allowed him to escape via time travel. Soon after he’s arrested by a shady organization called the TVA. It’s a good show full of doppelgangers and MCU callbacks. What I enjoyed most about … Continue reading The Story Monster Podcast – Episode 04: Loki (2021-) Review

The Story Monster Podcast – Episode 02: Dororo Part 1

Dororo is a hardcore anime. It’s strange and really embraces Japanese mythology. Each demon has a unique design that stands out from the Western view of what we’re used to. Some look like regular humans while others look like something that crawled out of an elephant anus. They appear out of nowhere like wild Pokémon ravaging the countryside and trying to murder the protagonist, Hyaakimaru. … Continue reading The Story Monster Podcast – Episode 02: Dororo Part 1

Warner Bros. Heel Turn on Cinemas

Every story has a bad guy or antagonist. In the world of professional wrestling, the more common term is “heel.” In this scenario, Warner Bros. is the baby face Hulk Hogan. Its streaming platform, HBO Max, is the NWO (New World Order). Not a fan of wrestling? Then I’ll use a more well-known reference. “Anakin Skywalker has turned to the dark side!” According to Variety, … Continue reading Warner Bros. Heel Turn on Cinemas
